Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 with Tomcat6 and Sun-java installed using Apt-get and the standard repositories.

The "It Works!" page loads, but the manager has not successfully loaded since I tried to start a WAR.

Where should stacktrace.log be so I can check its permissions?

I expect there are further faults masked by this log failure, however I can't compare configs with my Arch server because TomCat's failing on that too...

The stacktrace.log is configured by Grails - see Grails logging.
